Beautifully Presented House In Stunning Location. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

Maison Vaslin is a beautifully presented three bedroom country house located in the heart of the Loire Valley on the exclusive and charming arrangement of 'La Rue Vaslin'.

Part of two traditional Tuffeau-stone French longeres, Maison Vaslin is the 'master' house. It has a wealth of character and charm and is located where the regions of Maine et Loire meet Indre Loire, making it an ideal base for exploring and enjoying this wonderful region of France - or simply relaxing and doing nothing!

The house itself features two lovely king size bedrooms (one en suite), a large twin bedroom, a fabulously spacious lounge, and well equipped kitchen/diner.

Comfortably accommodating six people, Maison Vaslin also has the benefit of its own enclosed private garden as well as the use of La Rue Vaslin’s excellent facilities, which include a superb 11 x 5m pool with south facing sun terrace, and games barn. Bikes are provided, free of charge, for guests' use and the nearest villages of Parcay les Pin and Gizeux are just 3km away (a nice 40 minute stroll across the countryside and woodlands, or 10 minute cycle ride).

La Rue Vaslin itself provides four individual, beautifully presented, gites. comprising Maison Vaslin as the master house, and three further one-bedroom properties. Our one bedroom gites are designed to complement the master house and can be taken as part of a wider booking. Individually, they typically attract touring couples and adults looking to explore this wonderful region of France. As such, occupiers of the master house get to enjoy the peace and quiet that La Rue Vaslin brings and as each property has its own private garden area there is an excellent degree of privacy.

The Owner Recommends

Culturally rich in its history and landscape, with lots to see and do!

The Loire Valley is known as the Garden of France and the Cradle of the French Language. It is also noteworthy for the quality of it's architectural heritage, in its historic towns such as Amboise, Angers, Blois, Chinon, Orleans, Saumur and Tours, but in particular for it's world famous castles, such as the Chateaux d'Amboise, Chateaux de Villandry and Chenonceau; all of which are within reasonable reach of La Rue Vaslin.

The rich and cultural landscape of the Loire Valley is an outstanding area of great beauty, containing historic towns and villages and more than 300 chateaux and castles dating back to the early 1100's - the most glorious of which were homes to the Kings, Queens and nobility of France.

Among the most notable are Chenonceaux, the famous Chateau straddling the River Cher about 1 hour from Tours; Amboise, the beautiful chateau built by Charles VIII in the 15th Century which has magnificent views over the River Loire; Chinon, which dominates the town, is now ruined but provides a fascinating history back to the days of Jeanne D'Arc; Azay-le-Rideau has a pretty chateau that straddles the river Indre just south of Tours; and Usse, the fairy-tale chateau west of Tours, which is said to be the home of Sleeping Beauty! Nearer to our properties in the region of Maine et Loire are the chateaux of Saumur and Le Lude which provide a great insight into life during these periods. 7

As well as the magnificent chateaux, the Loire Valley boasts some of the finest landscaped gardens in Europe. In fact, so lush is the Loire that this rural part of France provides a feast for the eyes - whether the manicured gardens of its famous chateaux or the vast expanse of vineyards, forests and open countryside that make the region a joy for drivers, cyclists and walkers.
